Pic 495 #1:  Clear bubbles on the right side and use bank shots to clear bubbles on left and open lock. Once the chain is broken, work your way up left and right side to drop the bomb above the chain and clear shadows. You can use bank shots to open the second lock on the right side. There is infection under second lock but you can use bank shots above it to break the chain. Be aware there are infection bubbles in Part 2 of this level so you may wish to not employ Charm/Wish of Antidote too soon. Once the second chain is broken you have access to drop the ceiling. Use your Rainbow with caution.

Pic 495 #2:  It’s a long way to the ceiling, so plan your shots carefully and shoot for maximum effect. Select shots to clear lower rows and this will start shattering the crystals. Continue working up the sides and center as there is infection creeping down the middle and you must not let it spread too low. Charm/Wish of Antidote may come in handy here. Once the sides are clear you can bank shots to drop the center infection cluster. There are shadows spreading as you work your way through to upper rows. Once sides are cleared, you can bank shots to drop the ceiling.
